The FD75 Hull Two is the first of the FD Series in the U.S. to feature a galley-aft configuration
After making its U.S. debut at the Palm Beach International Boat Show in late March, the Horizon FD75 has sold to an American owner. Boasting the space and amenities of a much larger yacht, the FD75 sits at the entrance of the pioneering high-volume Fast Displacement Series of yachts designed by Dutch designer Cor D. Rover.
The distinguishing feature of the FD75 is not only the ample interior and exterior space provided by the yacht’s 20’ 4” (6.2m) beam, but also the High Performance Piercing Bow and hull design that affords supreme comfort and stability. The FD75 is owner/operator capable but is fitted with accommodations for two crew members
Designed with a four-stateroom layout, the FD75 is further distinguished by its on-deck master and interior pilothouse layout. The yacht’s volume is immediately apparent from the aft deck, which is outfitted with a large built-in sofa and freestanding furniture. Folding glass doors provide access to the salon, where large uninterrupted windows enhance the feeling of openness. Complementary two-toned white and silver oak woodwork punctuated by grey and blue soft goods, grey mirrors and slatted wood design elements complete the feeling of serenity.
Uniquely this FD75 showcases a galley-aft configuration, which allows for the entire aft portion of the main deck to operate as one large entertaining space. Positioned to starboard, the galley is fully equipped with SubZero freezer drawers and a separate icemaker, and a wine cooler is fitted just forward.
To port, a convertible dining table serves as either a formal dining table or a casual breakfast bar. A fixed U-shaped leather sofa is joined by a coffee table with storage and faces a cabinet housing a pop-up rotating television designed to minimize interference with the views.
Forward, the aforementioned full-beam master stateroom enjoys private access from the main deck and features seating and a vanity as well as hanging lockers and dual basins in the en suite. On the lower deck, a full-beam midship ensuite VIP is accompanied by a single-bed stateroom to port that offers additional storage closets and cabinets. A convertible twin stateroom is opposite to starboard. A shared en suite serving the single and twin staterooms is situated in the companionway along with a washer/dryer and additional storage.
Providing a secondary option for navigation at night or in inclement weather, the semi-raised pilothouse is situated within steps of the master stateroom and is highlighted in black vinyl and carbon accents.
